About the Event

Part of the Joy & Devotion Festival of Polish Sacred Music

The Carice Singers  George Parris Conductor Rupert Jeffcoat Organ

A programme of gorgeously serene music centred around the Virgin Mary. In a beautifully conceived sequence from Panufnik to Penderecki, we explore the sounds, colours and sense of profound spirituality that Polish composers have found to express their adoration for the Mother of God. Among other rare opportunities is the chance to hear a setting on the Stabat Mater by Roman Padlewski (1915 -1944), whose life was tragically cut short while fighting in the Second World War, along with a vigorously imaginative Ave Maria by Aldona Nawrocka.


Andrzej Panufnik – Song to the Virgin Mary Tomasz Soczek – Prelude and Fugue on Tonus Peregrinus Roman Padlewski – Stabat Mater Henryk Mikołaj Górecki – from Pieśni Maryjne (Marian Songs):  – Matko Niebieskiego Pana                              – Matko najświętsza! Aldona Nawrocka – Ave Maria Marian Sawa- Fantazja Jutrznia Krzysztof Penderecki – O Gloriosa Virginum
